Eddie Aikau retrospective

Legend of a hero

The motto “Eddie Would Go” captures his story of surfing and saving lives in the biggest, most frightening waves at Waimea Bay.

“Eddie Went” memorializes his ultimate sacrifice: paddling alone into a storm, exhausted and cold, away from his 15 crew members and toward a faint hope of rescue.

The story is as fresh as ever.
